During the invasion of Ukraine, I want to record some of what I see in the strong people and the strong culture of Ukraine. I have a humanitarian interest in the daily lives of individuals changed by war. In my documentation, each story is one handwritten paragraph with one pencil & watercolour sketch.

     Journalists and photographers deserve my gratitude every day. I don't know anyone in Ukraine or in Russia; I am in Canada, removed from the conflict. I hope I’m learning how life is in Ukraine, and illustrating it for you, too.

     There are about 40 vignettes here. Just keep scrolling down!

     If this makes you think about other countries’ wars and politicians and corruption, fine, you do what you can do.

     If you want to donate to help the people in Ukraine, look into: The Canada-Ukraine Foundation
